It’s never too late to start improving your fitness levels, and with Easter out the way and summer creeping up on us, that’s exactly what we want to do. To help us get back on the workout wagon, here is a 12-week fitness challenge. ‘What’s the challenge?’ I hear you say. Simple. We’re posting one article a month for three months, during which we walk you through a 15-minute workout. We recommend you try to do it at least once a week, but defs squeeze in a few more if you’ve got the time and motivation.

Month 1

Walking lunges – 30 seconds

These improve your balance, increase core strength and tone the booty.

Power squats – 30 seconds

Everyone loves squats and for good reason. They’re a great full-body workout and perfect for burning fat and building muscle.

Straight-leg sit-ups – 30 seconds

Get your heart pumping with a few snap jumps. They’re great for working your legs and giving you a side order of cardio.

The cobra – 30 seconds

This works out muscle groups in your arms, chest and abdominal areas. It also improves your flexibility and helps with any stiffness in your lower back.

Reps and sets

Spend 30 seconds on each of these workouts and take a 30-second break between each move. This will give you a 5-minute set. Grab some water, get your breath back and repeat that set twice more with another break in between. And there you have it – you’ve got yourself a 15-minute HIIT workout!

Track your progress in any way you like. Keep a note of the number of moves you can do in 60 seconds so you can see if your stats increase. Record yourself and track the improvement in your form and strength. And whichever way you choose, make sure you share it with us on Insta by tagging #12weekchallenge. Good luck!
